Finally....

We were hit by the big storm and just now got our power back on!  :(  We had been without power since Friday and it was miserable with 100+ degree heat!  It's all a long story and I will catch you all up on the story later.  We lost all of the food in the refrigerator and deep freeze.  It was all ruined by the time we got a generator.  We also lost a horse...  Just makes me sad.  Looked like she tried to step over a downed tree and got her leg hung in the fork of it.  She had been up here near the house a couple of hours before that but with the temps over 100 it didn't take long for her to loose her fight trying to get loose.  When we found her she was barely alive....  I sure miss her...

I'll be back in a few days.  I have a big mess to clean up.  Lot's of laundry to do, bleaching out the refrigerator and deep freeze and trying to restock some groceries, just a bunch of stuff....

Oh, Kristie, I am so sorry! Hard to think about the animal suffering and hard to deal with the loss of power in such heat--and the food spoilage, Now the cleanup. I have been praying for those in the path of the storms. Wish I could come help with clean-up.

I'm glad that y'all are ok, but sorry to hear about losing your horse. I know how hard that is. Wish I could come help muck things out with you. Sending virtual moral support.

How sad; it is the animals that I tend to think of during a natural disaster. Wish I could help in some way. There is just so much suffering going on - extreme heat, fires, floods. Winter is so bad after all :)

Oh I had missed this post... so sorry - I figured you probably lost food, but didn't even think about the animals. So glad you and the family are OK. Stay cool!
